Go-Pro footage has been released of the last moments a group of ISIS militants who fled a battle, in a desperate attempt to save their own skin.
ISIS militants had been gunned down by Hezbollah soldiers and the Syrian Army, and the ones captured on film ran for their lives in a makeshift tank, before an SAA tank bombed them with a missile.
The terrorists were literally crying on the film and screaming out in fear. They had both sides of their ‘tank’ covered by anti-tank vehicles, but that didn’t seem to help them much.
The scene in the footage is chaotic with screams of “Left, left… right, he is over there! Where is the tank?” Gun shots peppered back and forth between the ISIS militants and the pursuing Syrian Army.
Everything was captured on an ISIS militant’s Go-Pro camera, which they typically use the footage for propaganda videos. Trying to prove their jihad is working.
During the more frequent occasion they end up dead, opposition forces of ISIS will publish the footage showing their demise.
Via the Daily Mail: The battle came amid the onslaught brought on my ISIS’ enemies earlier in the year, where huge swathes of occupied land were recaptured by the Syrian Army.
Islamic State declared a caliphate in 2014 and at the height of its power ruled over millions of people, from northern Syria to the outskirts of Iraq’s capital Baghdad, but of late endured a series of losses.
Raqqa was the group’s de facto Syrian capital, a centre of operations where it oversaw the management of much of eastern, central and northern Syria and planned attacks abroad.
Trump and Mattis have done a lot of work to see to the defeat of this terror network.
“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”
President Trump gave a free hand to Mattis, who in May stressed military commanders were no longer being slowed by Washington “decision cycles,” or by the White House micromanaging that existed President Obama. As a result of the new approach, the fall of ISIS in Iraq came even more swiftly than hardened U.S. military leaders expected.
